Crestview teen arrested on concealed weapons charges

CRESTVIEW, Fla., May 16, 2019—A Crestview teen arrested in March for possession of a firearm on school property was arrested again Thursday.

Jabari Trevone Imani, 15, was seen near an Okaloosa Academy bus stop on Cross Drive in Crestview around 7:30 a.m.

A witness said Imani raised his shirt to show he had a handgun in his waistband.

An Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputy found Imani walking on Cross Drive a short time later.

He was uncooperative, denied having a weapon and resisted any attempt to be searched.

When other deputies arrived to assist, they spotted the firearm gaping through a hole in his pants. The hammer was in the cocked position.

Imani says he had just found the weapon while walking.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrested Imani March 28 after he was found with an unloaded gun in his waistband on school grounds at Crestview High School, where he had previously been a student.

Ammunition and marijuana were also located in a shed outside a friend’s home where he had been living temporarily during that time.

The March incident resulted in four felony charges.

For this recent incident, Imani was charged with carrying a concealed firearm, possession of a weapon or ammo by a delinquent and resisting arrest without violence.
